This is an old recipe that I have had kicking around for years. I always enjoy making it in a loaf tin, but you could spread it out into more of a traybake if you prefer.

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a loaf tin or deep baking tray.
Combine the margarine, sugar, treacle and milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, till the sugar has dissolved. In a bowl, sift all the dry ingredients together and mix. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into the prepared tin.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
